Dover and Dover again
Yesterday, the Kansas school board approved, by a vote of 6-4, a modification of public school science standards to cast doubt on evolution and to include creationist explanations for natural phenomena:
The new standards say high school students must understand major evolutionary concepts. But they also declare that the basic Darwinian theory that all life had a common origin and that natural chemical processes created the building blocks of life have been challenged in recent years by fossil evidence and molecular biology.
In addition, the board rewrote the definition of science, so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations of phenomena.
Today, the voters of Dover, PA have elected an entirely new school board, comprised completely of Democrats who oppose teaching creationism in public school science class. The old BofE that voted in the creationist standards were completely swept out.
Order is restored.
